food & photos

pretty lake, pretty legs, men with wine
sometimes i wish i was a foodie, but i know that i am not. i do love food, and that really is good enough for me. a few months ago i finally subscribed to gourmet because of all the lovely peeks jen kept teasing us with on her blog. and i realized yesterday that even though the recipes sound impossibly delicious, its the photos that drive me crazy. i told david last night i want to shoot for gourmet someday. how fantastic would that be? in this months issue there is a spread by quentin bacon that i just can't stop looking at. and when i'm not looking at it, i'm thinking about it. i recently had the chance to pick the brain of a really talented photographer (who happens to be my cousin!) and we spent a lot of time talking about style, and figuring out style, emulating photographers you like. well mr. bacon, you've made my list.

From the small peek of his photography, it seems you both capture your subjects on the edge of a luminescent focal point, be it the reflected light in this water, or the filtered light floating in the corners of your home.
You and Mr. Bacon are very enviably talented- I would be surprised if your dreams didn't come true.

Oh yes I SO agree about the photography in Gourmet. I like the recipes too. I keep wondering if I should subscribe as it would take around 6 weeks to get here for each issue but it is lovely posts like yours that are pushing me towards this :)

Nice! I haven't looked at an issue of Gourmet in a long time -- very pretty. The photography in the Toast catalog is also really good.

I bought that issue over the weekend on a whim. Wow! I agree--I keep going back to that article. I haven't read it, but I've looked at the photos many, many times. They make me yearn for long-past summer vacations, back when work wasn't pressing and I had no one to worry about other than myself.

I had a look at his website - just gorgeous. I loved a couple of the shots so much I even emailed to see if he sold prints. I must be embarassing myself - no response!
